    I'm a shopaholic & enjoy spending much more than I should to look good! My musical taste runs from jazz to pop with a little heavy metal in between - not a fan of rap or hip hop. I love reading novels & biographies, I like gardening - building & planting, but not weeding! I enjoy driving my old car.
    I get a great kick out of posting on TAM & composing replies to all the sweet responses. xxxx

  1. That was me in the autumn, I'm pleased you approve, michaelr. A picture in one of my threads - that's a first. It's not me folks!
  2. I do try to be consistent, officestockingsfan. Thank you for such kind words.
  3. My, you've been doing a little searching, officestockingsfan. I'm happy you're pleased with my outfit.
  4. You sound so excited, Petra. That's lovely. I shall expect to hear of you in Manhattans shortly!
  5. You are so kind with your comments, Ale. Thank you.
  6. Thank you, rowlf. I always try to make my descriptions come alive.
  7. I'm delighted you are pleased, John S. Thank you.
  8. I've been wanting to try out my new Manhattans & I thought they would brighten a grey day, Jessica. I'm pleased you approve.
  9. Sheer Tights

    Super Lucido's? Very nicely posed.
  10. Thank you michaelr. it's lovely to read how I have aroused your interest.
  11. A powder blue Triumph bra has lace upper cups, but is otherwise quite plain & simple. It is matched to a powder blue six strap Gio suspender belt with white trim & a white lace front that supports a pair of tan 15 denier Gio Classic seamed Manhattan stockings. Over that goes a pair of powder blue Miss Discreet full satin knickers. The red White Stuff dress is round necked & short sleeved, finishing nicely above the knee. It is patterned all over with white daisies, interspersed here & there with little circles of blue flowers. Winter calls for a little more warmth, so White Stuff comes to my rescue with a soft red cardigan that has ribbed edges & little metal buttons, as well as side splits. Hardly glamorous, but practical, this dark December morn. On my feet are one of my favourites, both pretty & comfortable, Ecco soft red Mary Janes with three inch heels. My chosen perfume is again an old favourite, Paul Gaultier Classique. If I do choose to venture out in the rain, I have my powder blue Phase Eight trench coat to protect me, but, looking out of the window, I'm not tempted right now. Let's turn the fire up!
  12. A black Maison Lejaby body shaper. has laced edged cups that have a small diamond pattern upon them. This is repeated down the front panel, the remainder being plain. The leg openings are partly laced edged, whilst the straps have lace on one edge. It goes over Heist high waisted nude 18 denier tights, a new brand for me. They are sheer to the waist & unusual in that the waist band is then quite wide, rising well up my body. Very cosy for the coming winter, without sacrificing sheerness. I'm impressed. The bottle green Hush Halley shift dress has various small stellar patterns upon it in black. It has a small boat neck, bracelet length sleeves, a loop with one button at the back & a stepped hem, an inch longer at the back. That said, it's quite short, coming some three inches above the knee, rising to eight when I sit. i did consider my new Gio Manhattans today, but I'm not one for showing my stocking tops, which would have been inevitable. Sorry, gentlemen. The shoes are green patent Mary Jane platforms by Next, that have four inch heels, not quite stilettos. So where does the Violet Blonde come in, i hear you say? Well, I'm Violet, of course, but I'm not blonde. It actually comes from Tom Ford's Violet Blonde perfume, which I just had to have, naturally & am wearing for you today. I guess I'm ready to go!
